“Tell me and I forget. Teach me and I remember. Involve me and I learn.”  Ben Franklin

Outdoor Classrooms inspires early childhood teachers, out of school time educators; along with, parents and families to create one-of-a-kind Outdoor Classrooms and/or Backyard Teaching Gardens. All on a shoe-string budget. One way we do this is through workshops and training.

All workshops and training are led by Victoria Hackett, M.Ed.  Whether your workshop is online or onsite, Victoria blends theory with hands-on problem-solving techniques, true-to-life anecdotes, valuable tips, and lively participation. Her extensive experience as a consultant/trainer/mentor and her background as a Natural Teacher allows her to bring a profound knowledge and a pragmatic approach to every workshop she teaches.

Did you miss a few of the workshops? Or, are you looking to hunker down on a rainy day and binge-watch all of them? Now you can! Interested? Learn more HERE. 


Transform Your Backyard into a Teaching Garden

With every crisis comes an opportunity. Now is the time to look at our backyards, front yards, side yards, windowsills, and porches a little differently. Can we transform these spaces into Teaching Gardens for our children? With time on our side and support from the Outdoor Classrooms c community, we can face our fears head-on and come out the other side a little bit stronger. Let’s come together. This is a 1-hour workshop and offers a Participation Certificate.

My mission is for every child in every school to have access to an Outdoor Classroom. Therefore, I inspire educators to teach outdoors and lead an on-line virtual community of Natural Teachers all over the world to create their own Outdoor Classroom story.
